Antidote to the News: ‘Light of the World’

By the time Saturday morning rolls around, the news of this dark and evil age feels to me like a bad sunburn. Every time you move, it hurts. You can’t bear to put your shirt on.

This hymn reveals the antidote: Jesus Christ. Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, has become one of my all-time favorite hymns, and I hope you like it, too. Jesus is that light, the true light, that lighteth every man who cometh into the world (John 1): the light the darkness cannot comprehend.
